Dan Bern - Radio Static

Song Lyrics

Last night you cried all night long
Last night you cried all night long
Your laugh like radio static
Never found its way to your heart palette
Last night you cried all night long
And it's strange being back in this town
I've become a reluctant ambassador
For the town that I abandoned
What do think of the trial?
Do you think he's gonna walk?
Did you feel the earth shaking?
Do you see a lot of stars getting
Sucked off in their cars?

And the radio never quits
Sheryl's leaving Las Vegas again
Why don't you just leave, Sheryl
If you hate it that much?

Lately I'm leaving every place
More than I'm going any where
Last night you cried all night long
Last night you cried all night long
Your laughter like radio static
Never found its way to your heart palette
Last night you cried all night long
And I've noticed
Since the end of the cold war
Folks have needed to hate this town
More than ever
Do you think there's a connection?

And I've noticed since about ninety-two
A subtle shift in gravitational pull
I think we're getting closer to the sun
But no one's telling us
And hey
Do you think there's a connection?
Last night you kept me up all night
And finally
After one last swollen peep
Early this morning you fell asleep

I tell ya
Being on the road all the time
Every time I get your message machine
Sometimes I want to go crazy
Drives me crazy
But sometimes
When I get your message machine
I'm happy to leave a six second message
And hang up
I don't gotta answer no questions
Sometimes I need it like that

And the radio never quits
Some unsigned artist thinks everything's fine
Well I think everything's fine too
Except I've never been so tired
My face is stained with salt from your face
And I didn't get no sleep
Last night you cried all night long
Last night you cried all night long
Your laughter like radio static
Never found its way to your heart palette
Last night you cried all night long
